In this article, effects of heat and mass transfer on MHD peristaltic motion of solid particles in a dusty fluid has been investigated. The effects of nonlinear thermal radiation and Hall Effect are also taken into account. The relevant flow analysis is modelled for fluid phase and dust phase in wave frame. Computation of solutions is presented for velocity profile, temperature profile and concentration profile. The impact of all the physical parameters such as particle volume fraction, Hartmann number, Hall Effect, Prandtl number, Eckert number, Schmidt number and Soret number are discussed mathematically and graphically. It is noted that the influence of magnetic field and particle volume fraction opposes the flow. Also, the impact of particle volume fraction is quite opposite on temperature and concentration profile.
